Did I go on any rides?

Not a single one. But when I went to the PNE this weekend, I watched enough Superdogs insanity, lost enough carnival games and ate enough cotton candy to last me through spring 2010.


They say the PNE is the best part of summer, and I might just agree if it didn’t herald the end of that season.

pirate-pneOn a side note, aren’t pirates b-b-b-bad to the bone? Man, I love them.


Speaking of things I love — the farm exhibition part of the equation. It was full of so many adorable piglets and chicks and lambs, I just wanted to scoop them all up and snuggle them for days.


Which is about how long I’m going to be suffering from an overdose of deep-fried oreos.


Would I recommend them? Absolutely. Just not after a dinner of poutine, perogies and pizza.

    Chicks are awesome… until they become chickens. Then they get eaten. And it’s sad.

    Liv — you’re absolutely right — deep-fried oreos are as gross as they are delicious. After the poutine and the pizza and the perogies and the cotton candy we chickened out and didn’t try the deep-friend jelly beans. Maybe next year.

    Jess — you know what the best part about the deep-fried oreos is? They’re basically covered in mini donut batter. So they sort of taste like mini donuts with oreos inside.

    Sofia — Me too! That’s all I was thinking when we were at the PNE — how much it reminded me of being little. Especially at the petting zoo.

    Dreamsequins — ah jeez. Let’s just live in a happy bubble of denial and think only of their adorable fuzziness.

    You were walking in at the same time as we were walking out on Saturday. Wooden roller coaster, whale tails, cattle penning, Harley Davidson fuzzy blankets, AC/DC trucker hats, corn dogs, baby cows = Fun x 10. I’m sending you my pix from the roller coaster. Had to take them 1/2 standing, holding on with one hand so they weren’t all shaky/blurry!! shhhhh!
